Helios console projects

About 125 Helios consoles were built for use in England and Europe1 and so the following is an incomplete and possibly not completely accurate list of Helios console projects. I’d be interested to know about apparent errors and missing records.

Mostly the job numbers start with 1, but there are a few that start with 7 which, for the time being at least, I've taken to mean 7 series.

1 The Great British Recording Studios - Howard Massey
